Strider of the Year

2018 Ladies winner is Angela Burdett
2018 Men's winner is Samuel Burdett

This award is voted by the members of the club. Voting for your male and female Strider of the Year can be based on a number of factors:-

Who you think has ran their hearts out during the past year.
Who you think has worked hardest on behalf of the club.
Who you think has represented the club best.
Who you think has entertained us best.
Who you think has been more than just a Strider member.
Who you think deserves the grand title of Strider of the Year.

Voting starts a few weeks before the Christmas Party, usually mid-November, and ends on the night of the Christmas Party. The Chairman will then count the votes and announce the winner on the night.

The Mens Strider receives for the following year the 'George Leggett Cup', a pewter cup in memory of a club member, George Leggett, who died before his time in 2004.

The Ladies Strider of the year receives the 'Bridget Payne' Memorial Bowl, a beautiful Irish Crystal glass bowl.

London Marathon Places

Each UK Athletics-affiliated club is guaranteed a number of places dependant upon the number of club members amongst other criteria. The Stowmarket Striders usually have 3 or 4 guaranteed places to the London Marathon. Having met certain club criteria, each club member can apply for one of these places. Since there are normally more applicants than places, names are drawn from a hat at the Christmas Party. Applicants lucky enough to win places for the 2019 Virgin London Marathon are:

Yvonne Doe, Karen Hamilton and one other who would rather not have their name published on a public site.

We wish those runners lots of luck not only for race day but for all the training they will endure for the next few months before the big day.
